Returned after a hiatus of a few months to this consistently good Japanese joint.

We had some staple starters (salted edamame; salmon sashimi; spicy salmon maki). Then the mains - we had the unaju set, and the teriyaki beef set (medium rare). Both were excellent. The beef, in particular, was unusually fatty with a marbled, al dente texture that just melted in my mouth.

Would recommend. Reservations advised.

The chef recommended sashimi is worth a try but its very pricy. The sashimi that we tried is quite good but after a few tries at chef recommendation, i rather order my favourite fish.

This place looked quietly exclusive from the outside with a closed door and not much indication of what's served. It was however, buzzing nicely when we stepped in.

We ordered the sets as they were reasonably priced. A-la-carte items were on the higher side and not knowing the quality of the food, we refrained from ordering sushi but had an ika mentaiko which came in very small portion.

My nabe udon set was decent. So was the Sukiyaki set. Nothing to shout about but maybe slightly better than the usual chains. The sides that came with the sets could be much better in quality.

The atmosphere of the place was good and service was warm and acceptable (more family style than classy). The wait staff is mainly local older ladies who seemed happier speaking in mandarin.

A few things prevent a rating of four for this place:
1) The a-la-carte items, which mainly comes in small portions, will escalate the bill quickly.
2) Alcohol selection looks wide at first glance but I can't find my usual preferences.
3) Location is at beginning of Orchard Road - the more inconvenient area.
4) Tables are set way too close together.
5) Besides a standard otoshi charge of $3 per person, a plate of edamame was automatically placed on the table. It came at a charge of $4.

Would probably visit again if I'm in the vicinity but will be watching the pocket.

We had the recommendation of selection by the chef which included a beautiful selection of sushi and noodles. We requested that the rice amount of the sushi be a bit smaller and it came out absolutely beautiful as the rice did not overwhelm the sushi.

Can be very crowded and i can see why. Price wise is on the high side but you are paying for top quality sushi.

Eating at Akashi (twice) was a great experience that I thoroughly enjoyed. The ambience is excellent, as is the food. For groups of 7-8, they have private rooms at no extra charge that add a really nice personal touch. The occasional boisterous diner may disrupt your meal, so if you are looking for a quiet dinner, this may not be the best place. I'd recommend ordering something off the set menu if you are looking for decent value for money, since the sushi and sashimi tend to be on the pricier side even though the portions are relatively small.
